International Yoga Day: CM Fadnavis along with Vice President Indulge in Yoga

India gears up to celebrate 4th International Yoga Day International Yoga Day: India takes a deep breath with Modi on the mat
| 23 June, 2018, 10:03

From the Himalayan region of Ladakh to the deck of an aircraft carrier, tens of thousands joined Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday to celebrate the fourth International Day of Yoga, with a few wearing masks to highlight poor air quality.

Along with the Prime Minister, around 50,000 yoga enthusiasts kick-started India's International Yoga Day celebrations at Dehradun-based Forest Research Institute.

He said the way to lead a calm, creative and content life was yoga. While Narendra Modi performed yoga in Dehradun, leaders and politicians across the country hosted similar events.

On June 21 when the world twisted a knuckle and bent a knee to salute yoga, countrymen themselves dedicated a part of their busy everyday lives to the ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice. "Our chefs have always encouraged healthy eating as a way to aid our evolving lifestyle and this is one more occasion where through the Yoga session, we emphasize focus on maintaining individual wellness". But yoga as a universal practice is a tool to facilitate inner peace which also helps an individual to transcend the self and attain enlightenment.

As the 4th International Yoga Day celebrations began today, armed forces did their bit by organising yoga sessions across the country. Instead of further animosity, yoga assimilates.

While short-listing the names for the venues of the main yoga event, the Union Government had chosen Mysuru and it was later shifted to Dehradun where Modi took part.


Modi said yoga presented a ray of hope for future of the world.

"Yoga not just connects humanity with spirituality but also connects human beings with each other".

The growing popularity of yoga across the globe has brought India closer to the world and this position is going to get strengthened in times to come, he said. People all across the city participated in it and made it a grand event. On this day, which is dedicated to the inner and outer well-being of human body, people across the world practice yoga in groups.

Prior to the celebrations marking International Yoga Day, the Muktinath temple in Nepal took Yoga to a higher level when monks, spiritual teachers and locals practiced Yoga Asansas at an elevation of 12500ft above sea level on June 17, 2018.

Modi portrays himself as a keen yoga practitioner, last week posting on Twitter his morning routine involving plodding around a tree and flexing over a boulder.
